From the New York Times Health news section:

Medical Journals Blind to Racism as Health Crisis, Critics Say
As a prominent editor steps down, the influential JAMA journals promise changes regarding staff diversity and more inclusive research.

By Apoorva Mandavilli
June 2, 2021

The top editor of JAMA, the influential medical journal, stepped down on Tuesday amid a controversy over comments about racism made by a colleague on a journal podcast. But critics saw in the incident something more pernicious than a single misstep: a blindness to structural racism and the ways in which discrimination became embedded in medicine over generations.

… It was only in 2013 that racism was first introduced as a searchable keyword in PubMed, the government’s vast medical library. Since then, however, the five journals have published many more studies mentioning race than those mentioning racism. JAMA published the fewest studies mentioning racism, the review found.

The New England Journal of Medicine rarely addressed racism until the arrival of Dr. Eric Rubin, its current top editor, in 2019. The British Medical Journal and The Lancet, both based in Europe, published more studies on the topic, while the American Journal of Public Health published the most.

At many medical journals, “a lack of scholarship” leads to an approach to health care disparities that skirts any discussion of racism, said Dr. Stella Safo, a Black primary care physician at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.

“Let’s have more editors that have this background, and know how to talk about race and racism responsibly,” she said.

Medical journals like JAMA favor studies linking race or racial inequities to socioeconomic or biological factors, she and other critics said. Less often do their editors, mostly white and male, accept papers that explore how systemic racism shapes the health care experiences of Black and brown people, they said.

JAMA’s reckoning came after Dr. Edward Livingston, an editor in a podcast discussion, suggested “taking racism out of the conversation” about societal inequities and said that “structural racism is an unfortunate term to describe a very real problem.” Communities of color were held back not by racism, he said, but by socioeconomic factors and a lack of opportunity.

Dr. Livingston is white, and the conversation did not include any scientists of color. A tweet promoting the podcast claimed that “no physician is racist,” and was later deleted.

The ensuing uproar prompted Dr. Livingston to resign. The American Medical Association, which oversees the journal, began an investigation. …

“I remain profoundly disappointed in myself for the lapses that led to the publishing of the tweet and podcast,” Dr. Howard Bauchner, JAMA’s top editor, said in a statement announcing his departure. “Although I did not write or even see the tweet, or create the podcast, as editor in chief, I am ultimately responsible for them.”

As America becomes more sensitive to African ways of thinking, we are phasing out tired Eurocentric modes of thought such as the scientific method in favor of vibrant new ways of explaining unfortunate outcomes, such as Systemic Racism and/or Bad Juju.

    Oh – The American Medical Association and JAMA staff seem to be unable to defend the scientific (=the rational) method and thus make proper use of it on the level of critical self-reflection (and self-defense). They have forgotten what made them big and strong over the centuries.

    Apoorva Mandavilli can quite easily switch into attack mode against the old white European form of modern rationality, because this has never been a thing for her anyway. The zeitgeist she grew up in had successfully abandoned scientific modern reasoning in the name of postmodernity. The postmodern/deconstructivist mode turning out to be a new a-rational and super-emotional funky (=sexually liberated) tribalism.

  5. The concept of systemic racism wasn’t developed by Blacks. If anything, they are kinda acting rationally to take advantage of the benefits and literal ‘get out of jail free’ cards on offer.

    It’s liberal Whites who developed and pushed the concept. Real Whites up in the MidWest and New England actually believed the heart of all this 150 years ago.

    I get that Steve is trying to make Woke people look stupid. But the truth is, we have to acknowledge how even more stupid the Whites were back in the day that led to this.

    It wasn't and isn't necessary to import any African concept of magic or juju to get here. All that was requires was to discard Occam's Razor and to rule the most obvious and simplest explanation unacceptable. The magic just happens whenever reason is discarded. Inherent racial difference has been ruled unacceptable as a proposition a priori. That leaves only some mysterious and imperceptible factor to explain readily observable, persistent racial differences. Enter "systemic racism," the heir to phlogiston and luminiferous aether.

    Hitting Netflix next month, ‘We The People’ is a 10-part series that, according to Netflix, “combines music and animation to educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people.”

    Developed by the Obamas’ own production company, Higher Ground, the series features upbeat songs from the likes of Adam Lambert, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Janelle Monáe. Crooning and rapping, the artists guide kids through a range of subjects, including citizenship, voting, taxes and activism.

    It’s a love letter to the politics and themes Obama espoused on the campaign trail in ‘08: people power, diversity, and a belief in the core goodness of America’s institutions. Needless to say, the show likely won’t feature a drone pilot bombing a Yemeni wedding, and definitely won’t explain the ins and outs of politically-motivated wiretapping or cross-border gun-walking through the medium of rap. Some defining moments of the Obama presidency will be omitted from this civics lesson.

    This is an old argument, AFAIK first made by Michael Moore in his Columbine movie nearly 20 years ago, namely that:

    Americans own guns primarily to oppress black people, and therefore the modern gun control movement is a continuation of the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s - the same cause, the same heroes, the same villains.

    Moore also implies that the NRA is a modern continuation of the KKK.

    The issue is the leadership class of America is mostly black. Not only that, its mostly black FEMALE.

    Who runs the media and entertainment? Its not Jews. Its mostly black women. Oprah, Roxanne Gay, Patrice Cullors, Shonda Rhimes, Michelle Obama, etc. Does anyone think black women are going to tolerate Whites much less White men?

    Who runs the military? Black men, led by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Think he's going to tolerate White people?

    Who runs the various medical associations, fortune 500 companies, the White House, Congress, etc? Its mostly black and black adjacent women. Nancy Pelosi does not run congress -- Ilhan Omar and AOC run it. Chucky Schumer is terrified of AOC and does whatever she tells him to.

    Bottom line, their is a racial caste system in America. Black women are at the top, and White men on the bottom. You as a White man have to know your place. You will NOT get treatment for illness period. Your life just does not matter. If it did, the leadership class would have let you know. It won't get any better. Only worse. A nation run by black women will look like pretty much neighborhoods run by them. So expect that. Everywhere.

  52. I don’t think the medical profession is institutionally biased as far as race goes, but it is certainly institutionally biased against those who do not have insurance, who may be charged higher prices than those whose treatment is paid for by the insurance companies. So that needs to be reformed.

    There is not much discussion of what is meant by institutional bias, but my interpretation would be that there are laws or rules or regulations that are deliberately set up by government or institutions to favor one ethnicity over another that are not accidental.

    A recent wide reaching report commissioned by the UK government reached the conclusion that there was no institutional racism in the UK. Although the findings were disputed by activists, I do not recall them actually being able to point to any specific instance.

    For example, in Britain medical care providers have been instructed to give priority to Gypsies and travelers and to not keep them waiting, because they are considered to be already medically underserved and the government considers it desirable that Gypsy women should be positively encouraged to seek prenatal care. So that does not count as institutional racism.

    However many people have argued that recent amendments to the regulations about voting in Georgia (US) have been deliberately aimed at the inhibiting the black vote. This would certainly meet the definition of institutional racism, if it is actually true.

    However it may equally be the case that Georgia legislators are just dumb low IQ rednecks, but not racist in their intentions.

    I don't think the medical profession is institutionally biased as far as race goes, but it is certainly institutionally biased against those who do not have insurance, who may be charged higher prices than those whose treatment is paid for by the insurance companies. So that needs to be reformed.

    There is not much discussion of what is meant by institutional bias, but my interpretation would be that there are laws or rules or regulations that are deliberately set up by government or institutions to favor one ethnicity over another that are not accidental.

    A recent wide reaching report commissioned by the UK government reached the conclusion that there was no institutional racism in the UK. Although the findings were disputed by activists, I do not recall them actually being able to point to any specific instance.

    For example, in Britain medical care providers have been instructed to give priority to Gypsies and travelers and to not keep them waiting, because they are considered to be already medically underserved and the government considers it desirable that Gypsy women should be positively encouraged to seek prenatal care. So that does not count as institutional racism.

    However many people have argued that recent amendments to the regulations about voting in Georgia (US) have been deliberately aimed at the inhibiting the black vote. This would certainly meet the definition of institutional racism, if it is actually true.

    However it may equally be the case that Georgia legislators are just dumb low IQ rednecks, but not racist in their intentions.

  85. European Black Highway Express Import rumors:

    EU looked at ‘importing 70 million Africans’ by 2035, says German MEP Gunnar Beck, denouncing ‘disastrous’ new migration pact

    Senior AfD figure and Euro MP Gunnar Beck said a strong election result would prove a useful weapon in his party’s battle against the European Union’s controversial proposed Pact on Migration and Asylum that looks to enlist its members in a centrally-run redistribution of asylum seekers across the bloc.

    “I have myself been working on the EU migration pact for some time and for me the enactment of such a pact would be disastrous,” Beck told RT.com. “Because the EU not too long ago was talking about importing up to 70 million Africans into Europe by 2035. In my humble opinion this is not what we need to modernise our economy.

    “And while the figure seems high, when the members of our migration pact campaign – including delegates from Denmark, Estonia, France and Belgium – met with the Commission just last year, that migration figure was brought up but no one at the Commission chose to deny it. “

    That suggestion of actively encouraging inward migration to the EU has been floating around Brussels for a while, as governments across the bloc look at ways to address the phenomenon known as the ‘greying of Europe’ where ageing populations aged 65 or older and low birthrates pose ‘considerable social, economic and political challenges in countries such as Germany and Italy’ according to the Pew Research Center, a Washington-based think tank.

    One wonder exactly why these “pose challenges”

    Meanwhile, the migration pact currently appears stuck in parliamentary committees, the received wisdom is that it’s being deliberately stalled until the outcome of the German federal elections is known in September.

    Beck suggests an alternative reason for the unusual delay.

    “It’s not gone through all the committees in the European Parliament and the negotiations of the Council [of Europe] haven’t started but I think the EU would like to push the legislation through from July onwards,” he said.

    “Now that all the countries are phasing out the lockdown and people are generally feeling better about themselves and able to leave their homes again. So the possibility is that they’ll try to use the general feelgood atmosphere – summer combined with corona relaxations – to push ahead with this deeply dangerous legislative package,” Beck said.

    Beware what you wish for. It’s hard to get rid of 70+ million people when you suddenly see the error of your ways.

    https://libraryguides.neomed.edu/library-tutorials/PubMed-search-tips#MeSH

    Here is the page about the Racism descriptor in MeSH.
    https://meshb-prev.nlm.nih.gov/record/ui?ui=D063505

    Now from there, what they “forgot” to tell us is in the article that prior to 2013 (1994-2012) this was indexed under Prejudice. According to the page on Prejudice, that keyword was actually established in 1966.
    https://meshb-prev.nlm.nih.gov/record/ui?ui=D011287

    Even more fun (especially regarding recent conversations here about measures designed to have disparate impact IN FAVOR of blacks, like giving automatic college admissions to students who were top x% of their high school class) is the description of “Covert Racism” from the Concepts tab of the Racism page. The formatting does not translate well, so follow the MeSH Racism link above and click on Concepts, but in brief:

    Practices or policies that appear to be ‘neutral’ or ‘fair’ because they treat everyone in the same way but actually adversely affect a higher proportion of people of one racial, national or ethnic group. It can occur even when there is no intention to discriminate.

    I don't think the medical profession is institutionally biased as far as race goes, but it is certainly institutionally biased against those who do not have insurance, who may be charged higher prices than those whose treatment is paid for by the insurance companies. So that needs to be reformed.

    There is not much discussion of what is meant by institutional bias, but my interpretation would be that there are laws or rules or regulations that are deliberately set up by government or institutions to favor one ethnicity over another that are not accidental.

    A recent wide reaching report commissioned by the UK government reached the conclusion that there was no institutional racism in the UK. Although the findings were disputed by activists, I do not recall them actually being able to point to any specific instance.

    For example, in Britain medical care providers have been instructed to give priority to Gypsies and travelers and to not keep them waiting, because they are considered to be already medically underserved and the government considers it desirable that Gypsy women should be positively encouraged to seek prenatal care. So that does not count as institutional racism.

    However many people have argued that recent amendments to the regulations about voting in Georgia (US) have been deliberately aimed at the inhibiting the black vote. This would certainly meet the definition of institutional racism, if it is actually true.

    However it may equally be the case that Georgia legislators are just dumb low IQ rednecks, but not racist in their intentions.

    The issue is the leadership class of America is mostly black. Not only that, its mostly black FEMALE.

    Who runs the media and entertainment? Its not Jews. Its mostly black women. Oprah, Roxanne Gay, Patrice Cullors, Shonda Rhimes, Michelle Obama, etc. Does anyone think black women are going to tolerate Whites much less White men?

    Who runs the military? Black men, led by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Think he’s going to tolerate White people?

    Who runs the various medical associations, fortune 500 companies, the White House, Congress, etc? Its mostly black and black adjacent women. Nancy Pelosi does not run congress — Ilhan Omar and AOC run it. Chucky Schumer is terrified of AOC and does whatever she tells him to.

    Bottom line, their is a racial caste system in America. Black women are at the top, and White men on the bottom. You as a White man have to know your place. You will NOT get treatment for illness period. Your life just does not matter. If it did, the leadership class would have let you know. It won’t get any better. Only worse. A nation run by black women will look like pretty much neighborhoods run by them. So expect that. Everywhere.

    European Black Highway Express Import rumors:

    EU looked at ‘importing 70 million Africans’ by 2035, says German MEP Gunnar Beck, denouncing ‘disastrous’ new migration pact


    Senior AfD figure and Euro MP Gunnar Beck said a strong election result would prove a useful weapon in his party’s battle against the European Union’s controversial proposed Pact on Migration and Asylum that looks to enlist its members in a centrally-run redistribution of asylum seekers across the bloc.

    “I have myself been working on the EU migration pact for some time and for me the enactment of such a pact would be disastrous,” Beck told RT.com. “Because the EU not too long ago was talking about importing up to 70 million Africans into Europe by 2035. In my humble opinion this is not what we need to modernise our economy.

    “And while the figure seems high, when the members of our migration pact campaign - including delegates from Denmark, Estonia, France and Belgium – met with the Commission just last year, that migration figure was brought up but no one at the Commission chose to deny it. “

    That suggestion of actively encouraging inward migration to the EU has been floating around Brussels for a while, as governments across the bloc look at ways to address the phenomenon known as the ‘greying of Europe’ where ageing populations aged 65 or older and low birthrates pose ‘considerable social, economic and political challenges in countries such as Germany and Italy’ according to the Pew Research Center, a Washington-based think tank.
     

    One wonder exactly why these "pose challenges"

    Meanwhile, the migration pact currently appears stuck in parliamentary committees, the received wisdom is that it’s being deliberately stalled until the outcome of the German federal elections is known in September.

    Beck suggests an alternative reason for the unusual delay.

    “It's not gone through all the committees in the European Parliament and the negotiations of the Council [of Europe] haven't started but I think the EU would like to push the legislation through from July onwards,” he said.

    “Now that all the countries are phasing out the lockdown and people are generally feeling better about themselves and able to leave their homes again. So the possibility is that they’ll try to use the general feelgood atmosphere – summer combined with corona relaxations – to push ahead with this deeply dangerous legislative package,” Beck said.

    Africans are more likely to get rid of Europeans. Already France is teetering on an Islamist / African coup. About 65% of young men below 30 are either African or North African. They see no reason why they should not run things and make Whites their slaves. The women for pleasure, the men for work. They have the men. They have the weaponry. They have the will. The only reason they have not done so already is that they mostly get their way and the Macron Government pays them off. But Macron is running out of money …

    It is only a question of WHEN not IF France is ruled by Africans and North Africans and all the Whites are slaves or dead.

    White people are just not capable of fighting any more. We just are not. We have not won a single war since 1945. And that took nuclear weapons.

Their beef is actually UNSYSTEMATIC racism, meaning the hostility, suspicion, contempt, disrespect that they believe they face every day and that, again they believe, costs them heavily in psychological terms. In this they may be right but that’s not going away soon. The reason is simple: White people don’t like black people. No law, no campaign, no speech by Biden, will change that. We see preposterous behavior, fashion, music, acting-out etc and we cannot but show contempt. They’re so ridiculous and foolish ffrom hair to names to excuses! We don’t like them.

    It was only in 2013 that racism was first introduced as a searchable keyword in PubMed, the government’s vast medical library.
     
    That intrigued me, so I looked into it.

    PubMed uses a controlled vocabulary called MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)
    https://libraryguides.neomed.edu/library-tutorials/PubMed-search-tips#MeSH

    There is a great deal of information about MeSH available at
    https://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html

    Here is the page about the Racism descriptor in MeSH.
    https://meshb-prev.nlm.nih.gov/record/ui?ui=D063505

    Now from there, what they "forgot" to tell us is in the article that prior to 2013 (1994-2012) this was indexed under Prejudice. According to the page on Prejudice, that keyword was actually established in 1966.
    https://meshb-prev.nlm.nih.gov/record/ui?ui=D011287

    Even more fun (especially regarding recent conversations here about measures designed to have disparate impact IN FAVOR of blacks, like giving automatic college admissions to students who were top x% of their high school class) is the description of "Covert Racism" from the Concepts tab of the Racism page. The formatting does not translate well, so follow the MeSH Racism link above and click on Concepts, but in brief:

    Practices or policies that appear to be 'neutral' or 'fair' because they treat everyone in the same way but actually adversely affect a higher proportion of people of one racial, national or ethnic group. It can occur even when there is no intention to discriminate.

    Montaigne is probably the best place to start

     

    I love this man (he was in Konstanz too - on horseback - from Bordeaux  - and on his way to Italy... - and he liked Konstanz a lot - he wrote a nice little portrait of the city in 1580 on his way to the baths of Lucca and then on to see the Pope in Rome).
    Joseph Joubert, I discovered just in the last few years.
    He has something in common with Montaigne: They both were - in times of severe crises (Montaigne in the War of Religion during which the black plague broke out too in his hometown of Bordeaux) and Joubert in the turmoils after the French Revolution - asked by their fellow citizens, to be the mayor (Montaigne served from 1581-1585) or the Judge of Peace (Joubert) for the time of the severest crises - and both followed this call and successfully so and then both said goodbye to the world of honors and obligations in the public sphere and retreated to their houses and circle of friends (in Montaigne's case, this was - a castle (it still exists)) - and from then on lived a life of the Hommes de Lettre - strictly reading and writing. Joubert did serve Napoleon in between for a short time as the national supervisor of the universities (1808 f.).
     Joseph Joubert did not even care to publish what he had written. Not the least bit. His friend Chateaubriand, who excelled in the same literary genre as Joubert, namely the aphorism and the short remark about life and death, etc. later (after Joubert's death in 1824) edited compilations of Joubert's notes - and for centuries now, such selections are reprinted every once in a while. - You need a vivid culture to - make proper use of your most valuable - - - - may I say: Men? or: Thoughts? - I'll go with thoughts.

    Culture is opposed to politics in one important hindsight: It is not necessarily about actions and success but valuable nonetheless.

    I don't think the medical profession is institutionally biased as far as race goes, but it is certainly institutionally biased against those who do not have insurance, who may be charged higher prices than those whose treatment is paid for by the insurance companies. So that needs to be reformed.

    There is not much discussion of what is meant by institutional bias, but my interpretation would be that there are laws or rules or regulations that are deliberately set up by government or institutions to favor one ethnicity over another that are not accidental.

    A recent wide reaching report commissioned by the UK government reached the conclusion that there was no institutional racism in the UK. Although the findings were disputed by activists, I do not recall them actually being able to point to any specific instance.

    For example, in Britain medical care providers have been instructed to give priority to Gypsies and travelers and to not keep them waiting, because they are considered to be already medically underserved and the government considers it desirable that Gypsy women should be positively encouraged to seek prenatal care. So that does not count as institutional racism.

    However many people have argued that recent amendments to the regulations about voting in Georgia (US) have been deliberately aimed at the inhibiting the black vote. This would certainly meet the definition of institutional racism, if it is actually true.

    However it may equally be the case that Georgia legislators are just dumb low IQ rednecks, but not racist in their intentions.

In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.

    European Black Highway Express Import rumors:

    EU looked at ‘importing 70 million Africans’ by 2035, says German MEP Gunnar Beck, denouncing ‘disastrous’ new migration pact


    Senior AfD figure and Euro MP Gunnar Beck said a strong election result would prove a useful weapon in his party’s battle against the European Union’s controversial proposed Pact on Migration and Asylum that looks to enlist its members in a centrally-run redistribution of asylum seekers across the bloc.

    “I have myself been working on the EU migration pact for some time and for me the enactment of such a pact would be disastrous,” Beck told RT.com. “Because the EU not too long ago was talking about importing up to 70 million Africans into Europe by 2035. In my humble opinion this is not what we need to modernise our economy.

    “And while the figure seems high, when the members of our migration pact campaign - including delegates from Denmark, Estonia, France and Belgium – met with the Commission just last year, that migration figure was brought up but no one at the Commission chose to deny it. “

    That suggestion of actively encouraging inward migration to the EU has been floating around Brussels for a while, as governments across the bloc look at ways to address the phenomenon known as the ‘greying of Europe’ where ageing populations aged 65 or older and low birthrates pose ‘considerable social, economic and political challenges in countries such as Germany and Italy’ according to the Pew Research Center, a Washington-based think tank.
     

    One wonder exactly why these "pose challenges"

    Meanwhile, the migration pact currently appears stuck in parliamentary committees, the received wisdom is that it’s being deliberately stalled until the outcome of the German federal elections is known in September.

    Beck suggests an alternative reason for the unusual delay.

    “It's not gone through all the committees in the European Parliament and the negotiations of the Council [of Europe] haven't started but I think the EU would like to push the legislation through from July onwards,” he said.

    “Now that all the countries are phasing out the lockdown and people are generally feeling better about themselves and able to leave their homes again. So the possibility is that they’ll try to use the general feelgood atmosphere – summer combined with corona relaxations – to push ahead with this deeply dangerous legislative package,” Beck said.
     

    Beware what you wish for. It's hard to get rid of 70+ million people when you suddenly see the error of your ways.

    OTOH, it's not all that hard. One order of magnitude up the Holocaust? Easy. Solutions can (and will) be developed. But that's for the millenials to do. Humans in action are amazing.

    I don't think the medical profession is institutionally biased as far as race goes, but it is certainly institutionally biased against those who do not have insurance, who may be charged higher prices than those whose treatment is paid for by the insurance companies. So that needs to be reformed.

    There is not much discussion of what is meant by institutional bias, but my interpretation would be that there are laws or rules or regulations that are deliberately set up by government or institutions to favor one ethnicity over another that are not accidental.

    A recent wide reaching report commissioned by the UK government reached the conclusion that there was no institutional racism in the UK. Although the findings were disputed by activists, I do not recall them actually being able to point to any specific instance.

    For example, in Britain medical care providers have been instructed to give priority to Gypsies and travelers and to not keep them waiting, because they are considered to be already medically underserved and the government considers it desirable that Gypsy women should be positively encouraged to seek prenatal care. So that does not count as institutional racism.

    However many people have argued that recent amendments to the regulations about voting in Georgia (US) have been deliberately aimed at the inhibiting the black vote. This would certainly meet the definition of institutional racism, if it is actually true.

    However it may equally be the case that Georgia legislators are just dumb low IQ rednecks, but not racist in their intentions.

    It may be the case, just as it may be the case that I am actually Princess Maria of Romania commenting under a pseudonym.
    In actuality it is more likely a case of Republican legislators in Georgia realizing that the Democrats are engaging in massive voting mischief and are therefore passing laws to suppress voting by non-citizens, dead people, residents of other states, felons, and, as some have even claimed cardboard boxes of ballots. Nothing whatsoever in the legislation will interfere with legitimate voters voting.

    Montaigne is probably the best place to start

    I love this man (he was in Konstanz too – on horseback – from Bordeaux  – and on his way to Italy… – and he liked Konstanz a lot – he wrote a nice little portrait of the city in 1580 on his way to the baths of Lucca and then on to see the Pope in Rome).
    Joseph Joubert, I discovered just in the last few years.
    He has something in common with Montaigne: They both were – in times of severe crises (Montaigne in the War of Religion during which the black plague broke out too in his hometown of Bordeaux) and Joubert in the turmoils after the French Revolution – asked by their fellow citizens, to be the mayor (Montaigne served from 1581-1585) or the Judge of Peace (Joubert) for the time of the severest crises – and both followed this call and successfully so and then both said goodbye to the world of honors and obligations in the public sphere and retreated to their houses and circle of friends (in Montaigne’s case, this was – a castle (it still exists)) – and from then on lived a life of the Hommes de Lettre – strictly reading and writing. Joubert did serve Napoleon in between for a short time as the national supervisor of the universities (1808 f.).
     Joseph Joubert did not even care to publish what he had written. Not the least bit. His friend Chateaubriand, who excelled in the same literary genre as Joubert, namely the aphorism and the short remark about life and death, etc. later (after Joubert’s death in 1824) edited compilations of Joubert’s notes – and for centuries now, such selections are reprinted every once in a while. – You need a vivid culture to – make proper use of your most valuable – – – – may I say: Men? or: Thoughts? – I’ll go with thoughts.
    PS
    Culture is opposed to politics in one important hindsight: It is not necessarily about actions and success but valuable nonetheless.

    Hitting Netflix next month, ‘We The People’ is a 10-part series that, according to Netflix, “combines music and animation to educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people.”

    Developed by the Obamas’ own production company, Higher Ground, the series features upbeat songs from the likes of Adam Lambert, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Janelle Monáe.

    He has something in common with Montaigne: They both were - in times of severe crises (Montaigne in the War of Religion during which the black plague broke out too in his hometown of Bordeaux) and Joubert in the turmoils after the French Revolution - asked by their fellow citizens, to be the mayor (Montaigne served from 1581-1585) or the Judge of Peace (Joubert) for the time of the severest crises - and both followed this call and successfully so and then both said goodbye to the world of honors and obligations in the public sphere and retreated to their houses and circle of friends (in Montaigne's case, this was - a castle (it still exists)) - and from then on lived a life of the Hommes de Lettre - strictly reading and writing. Joubert did serve Napoleon in between for a short time as the national supervisor of the universities (1808 f.).
     Joseph Joubert did not even care to publish what he had written. Not the least bit. His friend Chateaubriand, who excelled in the same literary genre as Joubert, namely the aphorism and the short remark about life and death, etc. later (after Joubert's death in 1824) edited compilations of Joubert's notes - and for centuries now, such selections are reprinted every once in a while. - You need a vivid culture to - make proper use of your most valuable - - - - may I say: Men? or: Thoughts? - I'll go with thoughts.
    PS
    Culture is opposed to politics in one important hindsight: It is not necessarily about actions and success but valuable nonetheless.

    This is active voice approach.

    An active voiced loon, no matter how active the voice, remains a loon.

    Passive voice born of weakness and fear. Unmanly.

    One wonders about such obvious self-aggrandizement. But not very much.

    If the stones can cry out the Truth why can’t emotionally incontinent expat donor-American narcissists? If God became Man (He did) then it follows that Manliness would be a quality one would seek to embody oneself.

    You go to middle-of-the-road, straight-shooting, respectable, mainstream intellectual discourse with the solid, tuned-in, vibrant allies you have, not the brave, forward-thinking, team-playing ones you wish you had.

    we are phasing out tired Eurocentric modes of thought such as the scientific method in favor of vibrant new ways of explaining unfortunate outcomes, such as Systemic Racism and/or Bad Juju.
     
    Oh - The American Medical Association and JAMA staff seem to be unable to defend the scientific (=the rational) method and thus make proper use of it on the level of critical self-reflection (and self-defense). They have forgotten what made them big and strong over the centuries.

    Apoorva Mandavilli can quite easily switch into attack mode against the old white European form of modern rationality, because this has never been a thing for her anyway. The zeitgeist she grew up in had successfully abandoned scientific modern reasoning in the name of postmodernity. The postmodern/deconstructivist mode turning out to be a new a-rational and super-emotional funky (=sexually liberated) tribalism.

    Agreed. There was no dearth of 'black history' when I was a secondary school student 40+ years ago (given what was allocated to history-in-general). That's 13% of the population and there's much else going on (and much happening to them that's irrelevant to their status as blacks). And if you want to understand the history of the black population, historical sociology is the most powerful tool, not biographical accounts of figures like Frederick Douglass.

  149. Racist medical selection is already happening, and I am guilty.

    Last year I moved from the big city to small town in flyover country and had to find new doctors. I had a great Asian guy as my GP, but had to settle for a white guy here. I might have gone with an Indian (dot not feather) if he was not an FMG. A woman – maybe, but definitely no POCs.

    I believe he was thinking that, unless the line was drawn at "one drop", there would have been a lot of mixed race players defined as "white". The lack of a "mixed race" category ensures this.

    Amazing and unfortunate how far our betters will go to wreck society over their perception of what is best for 1/8th of the population. Is there any historical precedent for a formerly stable culture being so obsessed over such a small share of its makeup?

    Replies: @San Fernando Curt, @Wilkey, @Neuday, @El Dato, @Whiskey, @International Jew

    Yes: in a bizarro way, Nazi Germany. It formed an obsession about an even smaller fraction (0.5%) of its population. This obsession in part motivated Germany’s invasion of the USSR, with disastrous consequences for all concerned.

    You failed to put that episode into its proper context. From the Jewish Encyclopedia of 1901-1906 in its "Toledo" article: "in 693 the sixteenth Toledo Council confirmed the other anti-Jewish laws. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Jews are reported to have assisted the Arabs in the conquest of Toledo (715)."

    Oh well what with the laws having no context themselves I guess enabling a conqueror to kill and enslave everybody makes perfect Hey wait a minute!

    This is an old argument, AFAIK first made by Michael Moore in his Columbine movie nearly 20 years ago, namely that:

    Americans own guns primarily to oppress black people, and therefore the modern gun control movement is a continuation of the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s – the same cause, the same heroes, the same villains.

    Moore also implies that the NRA is a modern continuation of the KKK.
